Lee Il Hwa Confirmed To Make Special Appearance In “Hospital Playlist 2”
Lee Il Hwa will be appearing in the hit tvN drama “Hospital Playlist 2”!
On August 25, OSEN reported that the actress will be making a special appearance in the drama. In response to the reports, her agency Big Boss Entertainment confirmed that it was true. They added, “Please watch the broadcast for details.”
Lee Il Hwa is making a special appearance due to her experience working with the “Hospital Playlist” writer Lee Woo Jung and director Shin Won Ho in the dramas “Reply 1997” and “Reply 1994.” In both projects, Lee Il Hwa starred as the mother of the protagonist. Her co-star Sung Dong Il, who played her husband both times, already made a special appearance in the drama by appearing as Ahn Jung Won’s (Yoo Yeon Seok‘s) big brother and priest Peter.
Previously, it was speculated that Lee Il Hwa may play Jang Gyeo Ul’s (Shin Hyun Been‘s) mother, whose voice was briefly heard in episode five when they’re talking on the phone. However, nothing has been confirmed.
“Hospital Playlist 2” stars Jo Jung Suk, Jung Kyung Ho, Yoo Yeon Seok, Jeon Mi Do, and Kim Dae Myung as five doctors who first met in medical school and have been friends ever since. The drama airs every Thursday at 9 p.m. KST.
